(Sharing here as well) Ok see this ^^ don't do it.DO NOT touch someone without their consent esp if they're having a panic attack or episode, it can make things worse, it can make them uncomfortable, the best thing you can do is just sit back and talk to
Mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of. It is not brought on by choice. You are not "crazy" for having depression, bipolar disorder, panic attacks, anxiety, etc. Erase the stigma of mental illness. And don't be ashamed to get help.
